  1. I've been away from Vatsim for some time and when I tried to connect, it immediately disconnected me. Using port 6809, and server, usa-w.vatsim.net. -- Did the server change? Thanks.
  2. HI Guys. I am looking for and cannot find a freeware Delta 757-200 for XP 9.7. I have found some planes that don't take the livery and vice versa, but not ONE plane with ONE current Delta livery. Can you send me a link? Thanks. -Bob.
  3. Both work. Thank you so much Mike. They must have just changed because the old servers were working just a couple of days ago! I don't routinely log in here so maybe I missed a notification of the change of servers? Anyway, thanks again. -Robert.
  4. Hi all. For the past two days I have been unable to log in to Xsquawkbox using the servers: usa-s1.vatsim.net or usa-s3.vatsim.net or usa-n.vatsim.net. On the s1 login, it states it is full with 12 users and to try another server to balance the load. But, none of the three servers work. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks -Robert.
  5. Hi all. For the past two days I have been unable to log in to XSquawkbox. It says server is full (with 12 users) and to try another server to balance the load. But I tried all three servers, usa-s1.vatsim.net; usa-s3.vatsim.net and usa-n.vatsim.net and none connect. Was working fine two days ago. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks -Robert.
  6. Why is US Air's callsign AWE (what does it stand for) and why is it called "Cactus"? -Bob.
  7. Thanks for your time and the info guys. I will check it out. -Bob.
  8. Hi again. When you are flying an arrival, when do you select the active landing runway to fly to? I mean, its too late at the IAF, isnt it? You need to know the winds ahead of time to program the FMC towards the active runway. When do you look for the landing winds, and couldn't these change again before landing?? -Bob.
  9. Sounds reasonable Charan. I just wonder why are the altitudes published on the charts at all,, when in Real Life, you Always have ATC to tell you the altitudes? -Bob.
  10. Ok, but all the published instructions are [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming there is no live ATC? I would usually want to set the various altitudes in the FMC for each waypoint based upon the chart. But, if live ATC is online, they just tell you, 5,000, expect 18,000 10 minutes after departure. And then once you reach 5,000, or even before, they tell you, radar contact go on up to 18,000. So, there is no point in setting the waypoint altitudes in the FMC at all, right? -Bob.
  11. I see. So, it depends upon the FMC and the plane whether it has that autothrottle capability. That would be nice, but I dont think mine has it. Oh well. -Bob.
  12. Thank Ryan. I understand that ATC goes before the published info. So, I guess regardless of what the SID says, if ATC says climb to 5,000 and then 18,000... that's what you do on takeoff, but follow the SID waypoints. Usually, ATC says "fly runway heading"... and then they contact you and tell you to start on the SID at which point you engage the flight director so the plane can follow the FMC? -Bob.
